A CRASH ON PLYMOUTH ROAD – AND SNOW BRINGS A WINTRY START TO SUNDAY

Shifting the snow was the first task of the day for most drivers

Confounding the confident predictions of the TV weather forecasters,  a light fall of snow blanketed  most of Penarth this morning.

The snow began to fall shortly after dawn – but ground temperatures weren’t quite cold enough to ensure that the snow stuck, and hovered at just 1 or 2 degrees centigrade .

Parishioners had to be careful on pavements and footpaths

The going underfoot was slippery on pavements with St Augustine’s parishioners having to take special care as they climbed the path to the church – erected on the highest point of land in the area on Penarth.

Overnight there was a car crash on Plymouth Road in which an Audi A3 is reported to have crashed into a black Fiat 500 – triggering airbags in both cars, and pushing the Fiat onto the pavement so that it blocked the drive of a house at 24 Plymouth Road.

The driver of the Audi is reported to have left the scene – leaving the ignition keys in the car. It’s not known whether the crash was weather-related – but the accident happened at 01:30 am in a section of Plymouth Road where streetlights are switched off at that time of night.

The “bleak midwinter” has arrived

The forecast is for temperatures to remain just above freezing for the rest of the day but the wind will remain in the North East making it feel distinctly chilly.

    I always walk down the middle of Plymouth road in the dark .
    It is far safer than the pavements .
    If a car approaches you know straight away by the headlights .
